Mr. Falk,

Thanks for your careful review. Sorry it took us
so long to get back to you, but we did eventually
get around to addressing some of the issues
you raised. In particular, I'd like to know
if you find the way we dealt with this issue:

In our recent draft:

"Note that this revision incorporates several
backwards-incompatible changes to the XML representation
of schemas. Accordingly, the XML Schema namespace
URI has changed, to http://www.w3.org/2000/10/XMLSchema."
	-- http://www.w3.org/TR/2000/WD-xmlschema-1-20000922/

I expect that the next draft will elaborate on this a
bit, but I'd like to know if what we've done so
far is satisfactory.

We're tracking this issue as...
